"When played well, creates beautiful music. When played badly, sounds like cats screeching. No one needs that."

The Violin is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is the second-strongest of the noise-based Things and is found in the Secret Door of The Bafflewood. The Secret Door outline is found after the fourth room of the maze on the right-most path. In the fifth room, the Secret Door is down the stairs. It remains in Mario's Album until it is turned into a sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once it has been used as a sticker, it returns to its original position. It may also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 100 coins and sold as a sticker for 20 coins.

As a sticker, it takes up 1.5×1.5 squares in the Album. When it is used in battle, a red curtain lowers as an audiences claps. It opens to reveal 4 violins under differently colored spotlights. They begin to play, only to get progressively more discordant. Their spotlights also move wildly. Once they finish, the violins and curtain quickly leave the screen. The player can repeatedly press A Button as the violins play to increase the damage dealt.

The Violin can be placed into the Sticker Museum as #15, alongside other noise-based and water-based Things.

British English description[edit]

This audio-warfare thing requires a squad of Toads to operate - one man for each of the taut vibration hawsers and two to manipulate the friction saw.
